The Chicago Sky announced that the team will host a preseason game against the Washington Mystics at the University of Delaware's Bob Carpenter Sports/Convocation Center on Tuesday, May 13, at 7:00 PM ET. Sky forward Elena Delle Donne went to the University of Delaware for her college basketball career, so this will give her a homecoming of sorts.
The Washington Mystics announced that there will be a bus trip arranged for their fans to attend the game.
Both teams will also start their regular seasons on the following Friday, May 16 and with good story lines. The Sky will host the Indiana Fever which will be a rematch of a first round playoff match last year between the teams. The Mystics will host the Minnesota Lynx, the defending WNBA Champions. Last year, the Mystics defeated the Lynx in their two regular season matches, which was the highest point in their season.
